Date: March 22nd.   Duration: About one hour.    Where: RVCC..

Abstract:

This talk is about standardized tests (SAT/ACT/AP/SAT Subject) and how they fit into college admissions. What criteria are important for college admissions? How should college bound students choose which tests to take and when? How much testing and what score range is needed? What if my school does not offer the AP courses I want to take? Is it worthwhile to retake the test if my score is XXX? Will all of my scores need to be reported for admissions? What options are there for a student who has very high scores in one section but very low scores in another section?
